Kaduna State Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Hajiya Hafsat Baba, on Wednesday said investigation has commenced on the disappearance of a day-old-baby at Yusuf Dantsoho General Hospital, Kaduna.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the baby, whose parents were deaf and dumb, was allegedly stolen by a woman hours after delivery on Jan. 10.
Baba said her ministry was liaising with that of Health to unravel the circumstances that led to the disappearance of the baby.
“We are working to ensure that the baby is traced and returned to her mother,’’ she told NAN in Kaduna.
“We are appealing to the ministry of health to thoroughly investigate all personnel on duty at the time.
“We are also involving the Nigeria Civil Defence Corps Child Protection Desk to conduct their investigations on the matter.
“This not the first time this is happening at Yusuf Dantsoho, and this has given us a bad image as a government in the eyes of the public,’’ the commissioner added.
NAN reports the mother of the baby, Salamatu Kabir, went through Cesarean section at the hospital and was recuperating when the baby girl was stolen.
